Computer Reseller In Dubai Reaches Out-Of-Court Settlement With Microsoft
(18 April 2010)


Microsoft Gulf today announced that it has reached an out-of-court settlement with a reseller who was selling illegal software from his store in Al Khaleej Centre in Bur Dubai. The settlement was reached after authorities seized pirated software from the store during a recent raid. The raid resulted in the confiscation of pirated Microsoft Windows and Office software.

The out-of-court agreement, which also included an undisclosed sum for damages, stipulates that the reseller will refrain from distributing any pirated Microsoft software in the future.

“We are heavily investing our resources and time into winning the battle against software piracy in the Gulf”, said Jawad Al Redha, IPR Manager, Microsoft Gulf. By intensifying our collaboration with government and law enforcement agencies we aim to ensure that resellers selling pirated software are brought to justice. The series of settlements that we are currently engaged in reflects a growing willingness among resellers to shun illegal trade and join the anti-piracy cause. Microsoft takes the issue of the pirated software very seriously because our customers expect and deserve the highest-level of satisfaction when purchasing our products.”

Microsoft continues to educate customers and partners about the negative effects of software piracy on the local economy and to increase awareness about the risks of counterfeit to consumers using illegal software, such as exposure to security issues like viruses, data loss, identify or credit card theft. By partnering with local government bodies, Microsoft has also stepped up its regional efforts to take legal steps against those who manufacture and distribute illegal software.
